With the recent technological advancements, travelling across the borders has become the norm. With costs of flights dramatically changing to rather more affordable than centuries past, relationship with people beyond the borders have been greatly affected. Whether a consciously chosen degree program or nothing but a personal calling to improve international relations, people have taken great lengths in order to be of great use. Nevertheless, there are still countries, which such democracy-bestowed privilege to cross borders, cannot do so.
While others chose to leave their families in pursuit of career advancement in international relations through different government scholarships, others pay the full price just to study the said major for the sake of the dreamed world peace. Others have even paid the highest price one can pay- life. Whether the motive is highly political in nature, yet there are some who use college education to attain such vision of peace.
Freedom fighters come in all faces. Some use their pens as instrument of change, while others use their intellect and voice through scholarly efforts to support the idea of harmony not only internally but internationally.
